“Implementing the integrated approach: Investing in other international organisations”, Hylke Dijkstra (IAI, Italy)

This contribution points at the importance that the EU ascribes to partnership in the EU Global Strategy and other policy documents as a tool to implement the integrated approach to conflict and crises. It notes that the EU, as part of the implementation of the integrated approach concept as defined in the EU Global Strategy, has actually paid very little attention to other international organisations, and has failed to properly invest in relevant partners such as the UN and the OSCE.

The contribution makes a case for the EU to think more about what other international organisations actually need in terms of resources and how the rules-based global order more generally should be strengthened in order to fully implement the integrated approach.
